Zhongshan Mayor Mr. Chan and his associates were in Vancouver to begin their North America visit on Sep 7/2015. Shortly after their
arrival, they start with an official visit in Burnaby city, a Zhongshan sister city. Later that evening, a dinner at the Pink Pearl Seafood
Restaurant was held for them on behalf of the Shon Yee Benevolent Association and other Zhongshan based benevolent groups to
welcome them to Vancouver.
This especially warm and wonderful event drew in close to 300 members from the Shon Yee Benevolent Association of Canada as
well as five other Zhongshan based associations in Vancouver. In addition to this, there were attendees from three levels of the
Canadian government. Everybody wanted to grab a photo opportunity with Mayor Chan as he exchanged presents with Association
members. Along with the live performances during the dinner, this was a night that everyone will remember how enjoyable it was.
